~ In the Children of God Storybook Bible Archbishop Desmond Tutu retells more than fifty of his most beloved stories from the Old and the New Testaments. The beautiful and inspiring text is brought to life visually by an extraordinary gathering of many of the world’s leading illustrators, giving this Storybook Bible global appeal. Each story shows how God is working through history and ends with a short prayer, which will help to personalise its message for the child’s own life. This Storybook Bible conveys the message of God’s dream for his people – the caring, sharing God who loves us, forgives us and celebrates all the differences that make us who we are. The content focuses on the educational methodology of Christianity as a way of life, not a system of belief – with a text that is gender-friendly, ethnically inclusive and culturally sensitive. As the overall themes are relationships and reconciliation, wherever possible or appropriate we show in the illustrations the emotional or physical connection between the characters.
